Maternity Leave and Primary Caregiver Leave for Staff and Non-Contract Faculty Policy

February 8, 2021
The Maternity Leave portion of this policy provides leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and is available for female staff who are pregnant and eligible for FMLA. This leave covers the birth mother only for the time during which she is physically unable to work.

The Primary Caregiver Leave portion of this policy provides leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to both male and female staff members who have recently added to their family through birth or adoption.

This policy updates the University’s previous Maternity Leave and Primary Caregiver Leave for Staff and Non-Contract Faculty policy.
